Happy New Year

I was trying to remember what I did last New Year’s Eve but my mind is a blank. I did look up my blog archives but as I hadn’t written about it, going to assume it wasn’t that memorable. This year won’t be any different. Choo-Choo and I are laying about waiting for the Chinese food I ordered to arrive. The plan then is to watch About A Boy on video. You would think I would do something else with my time since I saw two movies earlier today at theatre (21 Grams & Girl With a Pearl Earring), but […]

The Hornet’s Nest

President Carter has written a new book. That’s not really surprising in that he’s written 17 other books since he left the White House. What is surprising is that this book is a novel. He’s the first President to write such a book. I haven’t read it, but the early reviews are positive. So maybe I’ll add it to my never ending list of books to read when it’s released on November 11th. Below is a description of the book as written on Amazon.com. The Hornet’s Nest : A Novel of the Revolutionary War by Jimmy Carter. The first work […]

Babyville

Thank goodness the work week is over. I’m totally exhausted from it all. Work continues to be quite stressful, but we won’t talk about that now.

While it’s nice to be out with family friends living it up, nothing beats being at home quiet with my thoughts and a good book.

Downloading Music

Apple announced last week that they have launched a Windows version of iTunes. Am I the only person out there who has not yet downloaded a song off the Internet? I don’t know why, but I have no real desire to download music. Maybe if it was books, I’d be more excited. But even then, not so sure as I like the way I feel when I’m holding a book in my hand and I’m turning the pages. Who knows, maybe one of these days I’ll download a song. For now, I’m in no hurry. Heck, I hardly listen to […]

Overdosing on Chick-Lit

Reading chick-lit out loud to Choo-Choo which can be downright funny, is no fun. He just looks at me and wails. Thinking he wants me to stop reading books like Smart vs. Pretty which I finished yesterday, and Asking for Trouble which I’m already half-way through and move on to more serious literature. Not to be a book snob, but some of these books are no better than harlequin romance novels which I pride myself on not reading. In fact, I’ve never read a harlequin romance novel. Yet, I can’t tear myself away from this new wave of romance novels […]
